Firefox can't find servers?? - September 10th 2015, 01:00 AM

So I thought I would reach out about this problem on Tumblr but I can't get to Tumbler either. The same goes for Twitter, Google and deviantArt at the moment and I'm pretty perplexed. And the same situation goes for those sites on my phone as well, the Tumblr and Twitter apps aren't working and I cannot get onto Google nor deviantArt on my phone's browser.
It could be something to do with my wifi router and connection but Facebook, Youtube, a few fanfiction sites and this site all work at the moment. I'm even currently playing with a friend of mine on Xbox Live so I've no clue of the problem?
I use Firefox after Google Chrome announced they're removing a plugin which will affect me as I play some browser games too but I've heard a few people are having similar problems as I checked a few sites that run tests to check if a site is down or not.
I'm pretty stumped about this to be honest.

EDIT: Turns out it has something to do with the wifi. I turned it off on my phone and said sites worked perfectly on Google Chrome or on their apps. I'll have to bring this issue up with my mum so I suppose the thread can be closed... xP

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

You said the thread can be closed, so I'm closing it. I am glad that you were able to figure out that the problem had something to do with the Wifi. Sometimes I've had things act really wonky because of Wifi. If it happens too often perhaps you can contact your internet service provider and see what solutions there may be.
